Pairing Chocolate with Ile de France Cheese

Monday, March 11th, 2013












Boasting a rich and succulent consistency, chocolate generally makes for a favorable treat enjoyed by many around the world. As a delectable aliment, chocolate is quite satisfying on its own, but if there is another food that can complement it by enhancing the overall flavor and creaminess, it is definitely cheese. Not just any cheese, but gourmet cheese.

Though everyone’s palate is unique, we suggest starting your chocolate and cheese pairing adventure by trying a mild and rich cheese likeIle de France Brie with a creamy milk chocolate while contrasting the bittersweet dark chocolate with a robustly tangy fromage like Ile de France Roquefort.

If you’ve never had a recipe that paired the two foods together, try making our Chocolate-glazed St. André or our White Chocolate Cheesecake!
